A new home (away from home away from home)
Hello again from Dundee, the city of Jam, Jute, and Journalism
. I recently started a residency at Abertay University
, where I am now the New Media Artist in the amazing new Whitespace
It's a fantastic place, a huge area that used to be the heavy engineering department which is now dedicated to digital media in all it's forms...there are recording studios, media production suites, and creative professionals, all sharing space with students studying video game production, sound, video, you name it. It's a great atmosphere, and I get a workspace amidst it all.
Over the next nine months or so I hope to spend about three days a week here, where I will be developing some of the artistic projects I haven't had time for recently. These include some video work, some music, some game-based-art, some mechanical noise making devices, and so on. And I'll be blogging about it as much as possible!
Live Wii-mixing in Glasgow this weekend
This Saturday I will be playing a set at the Buff Club
in Glasgow. Electrorock duo Any Color Black
will be playing a show and taking tons of pictures in order to create artwork for their upcoming EP, and I will be remixing some of their songs with the LoopMachine! Expect some crazy Wii music action, and a generally wild night overall.
It’s free, starts at 7:30 (doors at 7) and you can get into the dance party that follows for free! Check out the event website for details. See you there! apologies to those who have already read this on wiiloopmachine.com
